NEW Happy Tummies

Rafferty’s Garden understands what our precious babies need at each stage of their development – particularly when it comes to food! At 8 months our growing babies are exploring a new world of foods as they enjoy more family meals – testing their little digestive systems. Our Happy Tummies range contains prebiotic fibre and even better, each pouch contains 2 serves of veggies! It’s the next best thing to homemade food and tastes delicious! But are prebiotics and what do they actually do?

Why Prebiotics?

Prebiotics are carbohydrates that are also a type of soluble dietary fibre. Prebiotics, like all other dietary fibres, make the journey through the gut unaffected by digestion. And as a favoured food for the ‘good bugs’ found in the large bowel, prebiotic fibre is nourishing fuel that keeps these bacteria healthy.

Prebiotics are found naturally in many foods including vegetables such as onion, garlic asparagus, fennel, peas and corn, legumes like dried beans and lentils, fruit such as nectarines, peaches, watermelon and dried fruit, foods made from rye, wheat or oats, nuts like cashews and pistachios and breast milk which is a particularly rich source.

While the benefits of prebiotics remain under study what we do know is that we all have happier tummies when the good bugs outnumber bad. So by nourishing our good bugs with prebiotic fibre we ensure the good bugs stay healthy, strong and in good supply to keep the bad bugs under control.

At Rafferty’s Garden we also understand the challenge of ensuring your little ones get enough vegetables, which is why each pouch contains 2 serves of veggies* – helping babies achieve their recommended daily needs.
*1 serve of veggies for babies at 8 months is 20g. www.eatforhealth.gov.au
